[laughter] if there is a question i hope you do not look at it as a challenge. i think it is a feeling. there are quite a few events in the park. it is really about managing them and making sure that your outreach is good. i would like to work together, wherever you are. i want to thank our panelists. i hope that you will as well. [applause] i hope that that gave you some food for thought, the idea here about things that we will talk about in the breakouts. we have got some food and beverage out there. i know that we have drinks, cookies, even sandwiches. it should be in room a, one of our breakout sessions. take this opportunity to use the west -- the restaurant and find your own way. thank you. -- rest room and find your own way. thank you. but the anniversary of the great earthquake was remembered. >> i would like to ask for a minute of silence. >> let's have a moment of silence. >> they meet for the annual reflating ceremony. he was joined by winnie for an afternoon celebration. we are here
building up their forces and deploying tanks along the border. u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton has condemned syria for the shelling of the turkish town. >> we are outraged that the syrians have been shooting across the border. >> clinton said the u.s. government is consulting with turkey over what she called a very dangerous situation. turkey is a nato ally of the u.s. she called on responsible nations worldwide to push the syrian government into a cease-fire and political transition of power. >>> emergency workers in syria are doing what they can to help the wounded after an attack in the city of aleppo. at least three powerful explosions ripped through the center of the commercial capital. they killed more than 30 people. state run tv reports explosions occurred near an officer's club in the northern city. opposition forces are claiming responsibility. they say they used the car bombings to target officers and militias loyal to president bashar al assad. the free syrian army renewed its offensive last week in an effort to win control of aleppo. government forces responded with ai

the san francisco business times for putting on this event. and i think for most of us in this room, we rely very heavily on the san francisco business times to keep track of what is going on in san francisco, and the greater bay area, in the real estate world. and it is the best source of that information for all of us. mary asked me if i would make a few observations about the general state of the real estate economy here in san francisco and as i do that, i always have to think about what to say that mary hasn't already said about it. and if you look at the real estate economy generally in our nation, and the fact that it is still soft. that we still need more jobs. that there is a recovery, but it's a slow recovery. you can't do that without thinking gee, will i sound like a politician for one or the other major political parties? and so i will steer clear of that and focus instead on san francisco and maybe we're living in a bubble, but it's a pretty wonderful bubble to be living in. the real question is the resurgence of real estate we're seeing now, is that sustained growth? is
. >> good morning. mosaic. a special program for us. the bay area has a lot of talented people. we are delighted to bring you dr. snyder the professor of biblical studies and spirituality. and a sister of the sisters servants of the immaculate heart of mary. did i say that close? okay. thank you. welcome. welcome. in short, dr. snyder is a professor and a nun and lives in bay area. lives in alameda. she's here to chat with us and it's truly a pleasure. thank you for taking time here. let's begin with -- let's begin with you. you you grew up in michigan. born in chicago. cub or white sox fans i should ask. either one. at some point you decided to enter into the religious life. tell us about that decision and tell us about entering with the sisters. >> well, in catholic lingo the experience is a call. much like a call to ministry. or a call to be an artist. one is being invited to do something with one's life. and in this case, i suppose you could call it a special invitation of religion but a desire to spend one's life growing in union with god and serving god's people. >> so this c
that summarizes some of the concerns that i have heard since our meeting. how will this use be compatible with the adjacent neighborhoods? what is the schedule and the nature of the tow operations? what will it be? what are the traffic impacts and what role will our neighbors have addressing the site or access employment opportunities on the site? >> thank you, cristen mcgeary. we received the questions from your constituent and i'm happy to answer them. the impact on the adjacent neighborhood is that it's just over the border in daly city. daly city went through an extensive planning department and council review through ceqa and there was a traffic study done. so all of those documents are on file with the city of daly city. so the traffic impacts were studied in comparison, for instance to the former post office facility that was there. and found that the uses which are planned to be the towed cars, and other mta uses. for instance our training facility, possibly enforcement and other vehicles to be stored there. were actually similar impacts and spread over time. for instance th
as well as on state and cooperating with our federal agencies with the u.s. forest service. so two-fold program, vegetation management, we aggressively pursue that, but also from a public education stand point. what we find in these large scale incidents, the public is going to have to be self-sustaining and self-supporting. they need to be prepared. we try to educate them in respect that we say we'll provide the offense, you provide the defense. we talk to them about hardening their structures in a defensive measure against wild land fires. a lot of it is public education, survivability, building standards, but predominately our focus is putting the onus on the land owner, putting the onus on the private property owner, we will attempt to protect your home but the days of staying and defending your home and killing our fire fighters are done. we will not stand and defend a house that has not been prepared by a land owner and die for it. we don't do that any more. that's one of our doctrinal changes and we set forth some new guidelines with that. >> thank you. >> question, m
and other folks who also could use additional employment. so i think jobs is a big issue for me. >> miss johnson? >> i agree that it's difficult to pick just one issue. but i think a lot of our policy issues that we're having, that you have in front of us come from a lack of accountable. where is your money being spent? how is it being spent? there is a lot of mismanagement. and there is a lot of money that goes places we don't know where it's going. and you can see it running through all of this discussion of all of the polices. are our elected officials making policy decisions that are sustainable? that promote equity? or are they for-sale to the highest bidder? these are the things that we need to address, otherwise you will have the exact same problems of people asking for more and more people and creating a city where there is very wealthy and very poor people. so i would like to give a quick shout out in that direction to supervisor olague, who is having the san francisco housing authority try to film its meetings. it doesn't even meet at city hall and this is the kind of ineq
. >> let's not talk past tense. the same guys that misled us are saying let me lead again. that's what he's going to have to deal with tonight. >> 17 out of 24 of his foreign affairs advisers are the ones that led us into the mistake that my friend steve just repented for tonight. >> well, it's time for mitt romney to answer the sarah palin question. are you for the bush doctrine? it's about international intervention. that has been the format for the republican party. go in there, wipe it out, do what you got to do. president obama was handed a military that was debleeted with resources. surgical strikes and it's worked to this point about keeping us safe. >> the democrats have had a big fight about what the lessons were of the iraq war. the republicans have not had that. it's part of what makes tonight's debate a big deal. not just for the race, but for this nation. the debate is about to begin. here now from boca raton is bob schieffer. >> good evening from the campus of lynn university here in boek ra boca raton, florida. this is the last debate brought to you on the commission by pre

it for me? >> sure. basically he is saying that the terminology used in the original report is fine. i used language that what would be the traditional academic version of the language and he is okay. he doesn't feel there is a reason to make change scption he understands it's it was done accordingly and reasons why i changed the language is primarily it was the language used in the city and since was to deal with san francisco and the discussion going on at the time i wanted to keeplet language the same to that discussion and why i had the definitions the way it was and he wanted changes made that were more traditional in nature. >> are you a academic or a card carrying member of a amdemmic institution? >> no. >> thank you. >> before we take any action is there any member of the public that would like to speak on this item? seeing none public comment is closed. mr. fried in terms of here, the lafco we can make the changes? >> yes, you can or if you don't want to. >> it's up to the commission. commissioner avalos. >> i don't feel strongly about makes changes. the report was complete
meeting, can you give us a little more information what that will look like so that we have a better sense of what it is that we're going to try to accomplish? >> barbara hale, assistant general manager for power. what i am proposing and ms. miller and i have not yet had an opportunity to discuss this more fully. i understand the commission secretaries have talked and it's a to do on our list just to talk further. what we would like to propose is to address the time line for providing service, and to give you a flavor of some of the key steps, key activities that have to occur for us to be able to go forward, and to discuss the scope, geographic scope and size of the program and customer base we would be proposing to offer service to in the first phase, both through preenrollment program and the opt out portion of the program so it's those two primary items we have at the puc on our list to discuss with you. miss miller, did you have anything to add or subtract? >> i thought we would talk about marketing and outreach and an item and providing a schedule and have the consultant come if th
conversation. i think it's a great opportunity. i think using us for the opt in process and i think both in opt in and opt out social media is going to be really helpful and i know we have used social media in relation to cleanpower sf but it hasn't been robust and i think there are ways of making it very useful and i think those are strategies that we can employ. >> thank you. we would be very open to spending a little time with our communication folks and yourselves and/or the staff to mind the good ideas you have to reach out to your communities. i refer to as reenrollment and the opt in concept and people can raise their hand "i'm interested" and let us know so that we include them in the first phrase of the roll out. >>i think the joint meeting would be great and especially on the subject of opting in and have discussion on that as well. >> yes. great. thank you. >> if i could just add because i think the success of the program is dependent upon the marketing so think it's important that is shared with the commission, and that we have some -- i mean we of participator
